If there’s one place in this city to go for ramen, it’s Gogyo. The Surry Hills location is known for the charred ‘kogashi’ style, or burnt miso ramen, which is a dark, clear soup and the best thing here. They also serve the more traditional tonkotsu ramen, and a chilli shoyu with habanero pork mince and tomato (another favorite of ours), all of which are best with a pint of Asahi on draft.
